PREFATORY  NOTE 

The  primary  purpose  of  Volumes  XI  and  XII  of  The 
Art  of  Music  is  to  serve  as  an  index  to  the  ten  preced- 
ing volumes  of  the  series,  as  well  as  to  the  two  volumes 
of  musical  examples  which  follow.  As  in  every  history 
of  music,  or  any  volume  dealing  with  a  particular  phase 
of  the  art,  so  also  in  the  course  of  this  series,  it  was 
quite  impossible  to  mention  all  of  the  thousands  of  per- 
sons who  have  had  a  share  in  its  development.  Hence 
the  editors  were  obliged  to  relegate  all  treatment  of 
such  subjects  to  the  present  volumes,  which,  therefore, 
have  become  not  only  an  index,  but  a  dictionary. 

Included  are  also  the  records  of  the  great  number 
of  theoreticians,  scholars,  historians,  critics,  teachers, 
organizers,  inventors,  manufacturers,  publishers  and 
musical  journalists,  who  have  played  so  important  a 
part  in  the  history  of  music.  A  reference  work  aiming 
at  completeness  could  not  omit  these,  though  in  a  histor- 
ical or  analytical  work  such  a  bewildering  mass  of  de- 
tail would  impair  the  flow  of  the  narrative,  obscure  the 
main  issues,  and  overburden  the  reader's  mind  with 
^dry  facts. 

For  the  sake  of  completeness  the  principal  facts  con- 
cerning the  lives  also  of  those  musicians  already  treated 
in  the  earlier  volumes  are  here  recapitulated,  and  a 
list  of  their  works  (or  a  summary,  in  the  case  of  the 
less  important  ones)  is  appended  in  each  case,  so  that 
for  ordinary  information  the  reader  is  not  required 
to  turn  to  any  other  volumes  of  the  work.  If  he  desires 
more  detailed  information,  criticism,  or  a  treatment  of 
any  particular  phase  of  the  subject's  work,  he  may 

vii 


PREFATORY  NOTE 

turn  to  the  references  given,  according  to  his  needs. 
These  references  are  in  every  case  preceded  by  the 
abbreviation  Ref.  in  italics,  so  that  they  may  be  easily 
located  at  the  end  of  each  article.  With  the  most  im- 
portant subjects,  the  minor  or  incidental  references 
have  been  largely  eliminated  for  the  sake  of  clarity, 
but  in  every  case  of  this  kind  the  reader  is  specifically 
referred  to  the  individual  indexes,  which  may  be  found 
at  the  end  of  every  volume  (excepting  I  and  II,  which 
form  a  unit  with  Vol.  Ill,  and  Vol.  XIII,  which  forms 
a  unit  with  Vol.  XIV). 

No  dictionary  of  musicians  can  be  complete  in  the 
full  sense  of  the  word.  Nevertheless,  the  editors  feel 
that,  in  the  present  instance,  the  ground  has  been  cov- 
ered as  comprehensively  as  possible,  without  rendering 
the  work  cumbersome.  There  are  included  very  nearly 
10,000  names  covering  all  periods,  probably  a  greater 
number  than  in  any  similar  work  thus  far  published 
in  English.  In  the  individual  biographies,  the  editors 
have  aimed  at  conciseness,  without,  however,  omitting 
any  essential  details. 

The  facts  have,  in  every  instance,  been  revised  ac- 
cording to  the  latest  authorities  available  at  this  time. 
The  exigencies  created  by  the  World  War  have,  in  a 
great  measure,  excluded  direct  communication  with 
living  subjects  residing  in  Europe,  as  well  as  independ- 
ent research  on  the  ground.  Existing  works  of  ref- 
erence had  therefore  to  be  relied  upon  for  most  of 
the  facts  and  dates.  In  this  connection,  the  editors 
must  acknowledge  their  indebtedness  especially  to  the 
eighth  (German)  edition  of  that  most  scholarly  of  mu- 
sical encyclopedias,  Riemann's  Musiklexikon.  That 
edition,  having  had  the  benefit  of  the  great  work  of 
research  in  musical  history  carried  on  from  various 
European  centres  during  the  last  decade, — to  a  great 
extent  under  the  direct  supervision  of  Dr.  Riemann, —

PREFATORY  NOTE 

has  furnished  the  present  editors  with  facts  not  only 
concerning  contemporary  musicians,  but  also  concern- 
ing hitherto  doubtful  periods  of  musical  history  and 
subjects,  which  by  virtue  of  recent  discoveries  have 
assumed  new  significance. 

Beyond  this  the  editors  are  indebted  to  various  other 
standard  works  such  as  Grove's  'Dictionary  of  Music 
and  Musicians,'  Fetis'  Biographie  Universelle,  Eitner's 
Musikalisches  Quellenlexikon,  Norlind's  Almdnt  Mu- 
sik-Lexikon  (Stockholm),  Baker's  'Biographical  Dic- 
tionary of  Musicians'  (New  York),  Wyndham  and 
L'Epine's  'Who's  Who  in  Music'  (London),  etc.,  besides 
a  large  number  of  special  works  dealing  with  separate 
phases  of  the  subject. 

As  regards  contemporary  musicians,  a  great  many 
facts  have,  of  course,  been  adduced  from  the  exclusive 
material  gathered  in  the  course  of  three  years  by  the 
editors  of  The  Art  of  Music.  This  is  especially  true 
with  regard  to  American  subjects,  though  here  also 
publications  like  'Who's  Who  in  America,'  Hughes' 
'Music  Lovers'  Cyclopedia,'  and  the  advance  sheets  of 
the  American  'Who's  Who  in  Music'  (edited  by  Cesar 
Saerchinger) ,  have  been  freely  consulted. 

As  the  work  is  designed  for  music  lovers  no  less  than 
musicians  and  students,  simple  language  has  been  em- 
ployed in  the  explanations  of  technical  matters.  Ab- 
breviations have  been  most  sparingly  used,  and  in  most 
cases  they  are  self-explanatory.  A  list  of  these  will  be 
found  on  page  xiii. 

The  reader  is  cautioned  to  consult  the  Addenda  for 
any  subject  not  found  in  its  proper  alphabetical  place. 
Also,  owing  to  the  confusion  which  exists  as  to  the  spell- 
ing of  old  names,  the  reader  must  be  warned  to  use 
particular  care  in  looking  for  them,  though  most  of 
such  cases  are  taken  care  of,  it  is  thought,  by  adequate 
cross-references.    Russian  names,  also,  because  of  the 

ix 


PREFATORY  NOTE 

different  transliterations  of  the  Slavic  alphabet,  have 
become  confused  in  the  English  reader's  mind.  In  the 
present  work  they  have  been  spelled,  as  far  as  is  rea- 
sonable, phonetically  (in  the  English  sense).  For  in- 
stance, the  Russian  s/i-sound  has  been  reproduced  by 
'sh.'  But  exceptions  have  been  made  with  such  fa- 
miliar names  as  Tschaikowsky,  which,  having  been 
introduced  to  the  western  world  by  way  of  Germany, 
have  been  generally  accepted  in  the  German  form. 
Uniformity  in  these  matters  is  hardly  possible  without 
a  radical  and  wide-spread  reform,  though  such  a  re- 
form is  highly  desirable.

BACH,  a  family  of  musicians  living 
in  Thuringia,  an  extraordinary  num- 
ber of  whose  members  rose  to  emi- 
nence in  their  profession  in  the  16th- 
19th  centuries.  The  art  was  culti- 
vated among  its  members  as  perhaps 
in  no  other  known  to  history,  every 
reunion  being  made  the  occasion  for 
improvised  part-singing  (quodlibets) 
and  intelligent  musical  discussion. 
Hence  many  cantor's  posts  in  Thurin- 
gian  cities  were  filled  by  them  and  as 
late  as  the  18th  cent,  the  'town  pipers' 
of  Erfurt  were  still  known  as  'the 
Bachs,'  though  no  B.  was  among  their 
number.  In  1590  the  baker  Veit  B. 
returned   from   Hungary   to    Wechmar, 


Bach 

near  Gotha,  the  town  of  his  ancestors.

musician.  The  latter's  son  Johann  B. 
was  the  progenitor  of  the  Erfurt 
'Bachs,'  another,  Heinrich  B.,  organist 
at  Arnstadt,  a  third,  Christoph  B.,  or- 
ganist and  town  musician  at  Weimar 
(grandfather  of  J.  S.  Bach).  Chris- 
toph's  son,  Ambrosius  B.,  succeeded  his 
cousin  Johann  Christian  (1640-82)  at 
Erfurt  and  was  in  turn  succeeded  by 
his  cousin  agidius  (1645-1717).  Hans' 
second  son  Heinrich  had  as  sons  the  2 
musicians  next  following.  (1)  Johann 
Christoph  (1647-1703):  b.  Arnstadt,  d. 
Eisenach,  son  of  Heinrich  B.  (see 
above) ;  organist  at  Eisenach  from  1665 
and  the  most  important  of  the  earlier 
Bachs,  uncle  of  J.  S.  B.  His  vocal 
works  are  especialy  notable.  Among 
these  are  preserved  the  biblical  narra- 
tive Es  erhob  sich  ein  Streit,  motets 
for  4,  8  and  one  for  22  voices,  etc. 
Among  his  instrumental  works  are  a 
Sarabande  with  12  variations  for 
clavier,  44  chorale  preludes,  etc.  A 
fugue  in  E-flat  was  erroneously 
ascribed  to  J.  S.  B.  (Bach-Ges.  ed.,  vol. 
36,  No.  12).  (2)  Johann  Michael 
(1648-1694)  :  b.  Arnstadt,  d.  Gehren, 
near  Arnstadt,  where  he  was  organist 
from  1673;  brother  of  (1).  In  instru- 
mental composition  he  surpassed  his 
brother,  as  a  few  choral  preludes  (all 
that  is  left  of  his  works)  attest.  His 
vocal  works  show  his  technical  ability 
none  the  less.  His  youngest  daughter, 
Maria  Barbara,  became  J.  S.  B~7s~  first 
wife  and  mother  of  C.  P.  E.  and  W. 
Friedemann  Bach.  (3)  Johann  Chris- 
toph (1645-1693) :  b.  Erfurt,  violinist, 
court  Musikus  to  the  Count  of  Schwarz- 
burg;  helped  his  uncle  Heinrich  in  his 
official  work,  and  devoted  himself  to 
improving  the  church  music  of  the 
town.  (4)  Johann  Ambrosias  (1645- 
1695):  b.  Erfurt,  twin  brother  of  (3), 
violinist,  associated  with  his  brother 
till  1667  when  he  joined  the  Erfurt 
Rathsmusikanten.  He  settled  in  Eise- 
nach in  1671  and  there  became  the 
father  of  J.  S.  Bach.  Ref.:  I.  455.  (5) 
Johann  Bernhard  (1676-1749)  :  organ- 
ist in  Erfurt,  Magdeburg,  and  Eisenach 
where  he  succeeded  Johann  Christoph. 
Of  his  compositions  chorale  preludes, 
clavier  pieces  and  orchestral  suites  are 
preserved,  the  first  partly  in  the  Berlin 
Library;  the  last  were  copied  by 
J.  S.  Bach.  (6)  Johann  Nikolaus 
(1669-1753):  b.  Eisenach,  d.  there;  son

Bach 

of  Johann  Christoph  (3) ;  organist  in 
Jena,  1695;  for  a  long  time  the  senior 
of  the  whole  family,  but  his  branch 
of  it  died  out  with  him.  He  enjoyed 
a  high  reputation  as  instrument  maker, 
and  invented  improvements  toward 
the  establishment  of  equal  tempera- 
ment in  tuning  of  piano  and  organ. 
He  wrote  suites  for  the  organ  and 
harpsichord,  a  comic  operetta,  motets 
and  sacred  music.  (7)  Johann 
Christoph  (1671-1721):  b.  Erfurt,  d. 
Ohrdruf;  son  of  Johann  Ambrosius 
(12);  organist  at  Ohrdruf;  teacher  of 
the  clavichord  to  Johann  Sebastian. 
Ref.:  I.  456.  (8)  Johann  Sebastian 
(1685-1750):  b.  Eisenach,  d.  Leipzig; 
studied  the  violin  with  his  father,  Jo 
hann  Ambrosius  (4)  and  the  clavi- 
chord with  his  brother,  who  was  his 
legal  guardian  from  1695  and  exercised 
his  authority  harshly.  After  this  he 
became  a  chorister  at  Liineburg,  where 
he  studied  the  violin,  clavichord  and 
the  organ,  travelling  to  Hamburg  to 
hear  Reinken  and  to  Celle  for  French 
organ  music,  also  studying  Bohm's  or- 
gan works  indefatigably.  He  was  vio- 
linist in  1703  in  the  orchestra  of  the 
Weimar  court,  organist  the  following 
year  at  Arnstadt,  in  1707  at  Miihl- 
hausen,  and  in  1708  at  the  Weimar 
court,  where  in  1714  he  became  Kon- 
zertmeister.  During  vacations  he  vis- 
ited Cassel,  Halle,  Leipzig,  Dresden, 
and  in  1717  he  received  the  appoint- 
ment of  Kapellmeister  at  Cothen, 
where  he  directed  the  chamber  music 
for  Prince  Leopold.  In  1723  he  went 
to  Leipzig,  where  he  acted  as  cantor 
of  the  Thomasschule,  organist  and 
music  director  of  the  Thomaskirche 
and  the  Nikolaikirche,  retaining  his 
position  as  Kapellmeister  to  Prince 
Leopold  and  adding  to  these  the  posi- 
tion of  Kapellmeister  to  the  Duke  of 
Weissenfels  and  (1736)  court  composer 
to  the  Elector  of  Saxony,  the  Polish 
king.  Bach's  enthusiastic  appreciation 
of  the  achievements  of  contemporary 
organists  is  one  of  his  most  memorable 
characteristics.  In  his  boyhood  he 
tramped  from  Liineburg  to  Hamburg 
to  hear  the  renowned  Reinken;  in  later 
jears  he  travelled  (again  on  foot) 
from  Arnstadt  to  Liibeck  to  profit  by 
the  art  of  Buxtehude.  His  challenge 
of  the  French  organist  Marchand  was 
unaccepted  in  1720;  the  preceding  year 
he  had  just  missed  meeting  Handel  at 
Halle.  He  visited  the  Prussian  court 
at  Potsdam,  where  his  son,  Carl  Philipp 
Emanuel,  was  chamber  musician,  and 
delighted  Frederick  the  Great  by  dedi- 
cating his  Musikalisches  Opfer  to  him 
(it  included  a  3  part  fugue,  canons, 
trios  for  flute,  violin  and  bass,  and  a 
6  part  ricercare).  B.  had  a  life  un- 
hampered by  domestic  infelicity;  after 
the  death  of  his  first  wife,  his  cousin, 
Maria  Barbara,  he  married  Anna  Mag- 
dalene Wiilken,  whose  father  was 
trumpeter    at    the    Weissenfels    court. 


Bach 

She  sympathized  with  him  in  his  ar- 
tistic ideals  and  assisted  him  in  the 
writing  out  of  his  manuscripts,  and 
bore  him  13  children.  In  his  work 
B.  fuses  the  characteristics  of  the  two 
great  musical  epochs,  the  period  of 
contrapuntal  polyphony,  and  the  age  of 
tonal  harmony.  The  list  of  B.'s  works 
is  of  tremendous  length,  though  only 
a  few  works  were  printed  during  his 
lifetime.  Among  the  latter  are  the 
Klavierilbung,  Das  musikalische  Opfer, 
the  'Goldberg  Variations,'  a  number  of 
chorales,  etc.  Besides  these  there  is 
a  large  number  of  instrumental  com- 
positions chiefly  for  clavier,  organ,  and 
clavier  with  other  instruments,  includ- 
ing preludes  and  fugues,  fantasies,  so- 
natas, toccatas,  suites,  partitas,  con- 
certos, variations,  choral  preludes, 
chorales,  etc.;  also  the  celebrated 
'Well-Tempered  Clavichord'  (48  prel- 
udes and  fugues,  two  in  each  major 
and  minor  key),  'The  Art  of  the 
Fugue'  (15  fugues  and  4  canons  on  the 
same  theme) .  There  are  for  violin  alone 
three  Partien  and  three  sonatas;  for 
viola  da  gamba  three  sonatas,  for  lute 
3  Partien  and  for  viola  pomposa  (in- 
vented by  Bach)  a  suite.  The  most 
extensive  of  B.'s  works  are  his  choral 
compositions,  including  his  5  complete 
annual  series  (for  every  Sunday  and 
festival-day)  of  church  cantatas;  5 
'Passions,'  of  which  only  two  are  pre- 
served (the  'St.  Matthew'  and  the  'St. 
John') ;  the  Mass  in  B  minor  and  4  in- 
complete ones,  the  remnant  of  a  greater 
number  written  for  Dresden;  the  Mag- 
nificat, in  five  parts ;  the  Christmas  ora- 
torio; the  Ascension  oratorio,  and  the 
Easter  oratorio.  For  fifty  years  after 
B.'s  death  these  works  were  practically 
forgotten.  To  Mendelssohn's  efforts  is 
due  the  fact  that  they  are  now  com- 
pletely resurrected.  The  complete  in- 
strumental works  were  published  by 
Peters  in  1837,  to  which  were  later 
added  the  vocal  works.  Societies  for 
the  study  of  this  master  have  sprung 
up  in  all  the  large  cities  of  the  Euro- 
pean continent;  the  first  was  the  Bach- 
Geselleschaft  founded  in  1850  by  Schu- 
mann, Jahn,  Becker  and  Hauptmann, 
which  with  the  aid  of  the  Hartel  pub- 
lishing house  has  put  out  a  complete 
critical  edition  of  the  works  (59  vols., 
1851-1900) .  Ref . :  For  B.'s  life  and  work

He  was  organist  in  Dresden,  $ater  in 
Halle,  but  dissipation  resulted  in  the 
forfeiture  of  his  position,  and  de- 
spite his  unusual  genius  and  skill,  he 
died  in  want  and  distress.  His  works 
include  concertos,  sonatas,  fantasies, 
suites,  etc.,  for  clavier,  trio  sonatas, 
concertos,  fantasies,  fugues,  etc.,  for 
organ,  some  in  MS.  in  Berlin,  some

harpsichord  player  to  King  Frederick 
the  Great.  In  1767  he  held  the  post 
of  Musikdirektor  previously  occupied 
by  Telemann;  this  he  retained  until  his 
death.  His  compositions  were  in- 
numerable and  embraced  every  form 
for  the  piano.  He  wrote  34  pieces 
for  various  wind  instruments,  trios  for 
flute,  violin  and  bass,  concertos  for 
'cello  and  oboe,  soli  for  'cello,  for 
flute,  for  the  viola  da  gamba  and  for 
the  harp.  His  one  book  is  an  analysis

BEETHOVEN,  Ludwig?  van  (1770- 
1827) :  b.  Bonn,  d.  Vienna.  He  was  the 
son  of  Johann  van  B.  (ca.  1740-1792), 
a  tenor  singer  in  the  Ducal  chapel  at 
Bonn,  and  grandson  of  Ludwig  van  B. 
(1718-73),  a  native  of  Antwerp,  church 
singer  in  Louvain  (1731),  in  Bonn 
(1733),  and  later  (1761)  Ducal  Kapell- 
meister in  Bonn  (1761).  Ludwig  was 
taught  first  by  his  father,  then  by  the 
oboist  Pfeiffer,  later  by  the  court  or- 
ganist van  den  Eeden  (q.  v.)  and  finally 
the  latter's  successor  Christian  Gottlieb 
Neefe.  His  first  employment  was  at  the 
age  of  13  as  cembalist  in  the  Ducal 
chapel,  and  his  improvisational  powers 
already  then  aroused  attention.  His 
general  education,  far  from  complete, 
was  supplemented  by  intercourse  with 
educated  musicians  (Reicha,  the  Rom- 
bergs,  etc.),  and  cultured  families  such 
as  the  Breunings,  in  which  he  was  at 


Beethoven 

first  employed  as  piano  teacher.  He 
was  sent,  by  advice  of  his  teacher 
Neefe,  to  Vienna  to  study  with  Mozart, 
but  returned  shortly  because  of  his 
mother's  death.  At  home  he  now  came 
under  the  patronage  of  Count  Wald- 
stein,  an  accomplished  amateur.  This 
secured  him  acceptance  in  the  best 
houses  of  the  nobility  of  Vienna,  when 
he  returned  thither  in  1792,  to  remain 
for  the  rest  of  his  life.  Haydn  was 
now  to  become  his  teacher  (since  Mo- 
zart had  died),  but  their  association 
was  hardly  successful.  Secretly  B. 
studied  with  Johann  Schenk  (q.  v.), 
and  after  Haydn's  second  departure 
for  London  (1794)  he  studied  counter- 
point with  Albrechtsberger.  Besides, 
during  1792-1802,  Salieri  was  probably 
B.'s  preceptor  in  dramatic  composi- 
tion. B.  had  arrived  in  Vienna  with 
numerous  manuscripts  completed  in 
Bonn  and,  adding  to  these  in  Vienna,  he 
published  an  extraordinary  number  of 
compositions  during  his  first  Vienna 
decade.  In  these  the  influence  of  the 
Mannheim  school  is  easily  recognized, 
though  the  stamp  of  individuality  is 
everywhere  present.  His  chief  occu- 
pation during  this  time  was  as  pianist 
in  the  houses  of  noble  patrons  and  his 
genius  as  virtuoso  and  improvisator 
secured  him  exceptional  treatment 
everywhere.  During  1794-96  he  lived 
in  the  house  of  Prince  Lichnowsky, 
and  in  1809  he  was  a  companion  in  the 
house  of  Countess  Erdody.  He  was 
an  intimate  friend  also  of  Count  Franz 
von  Brunswick  and  his  sister  Therese 
(now  generally  considered  to  be  the 
'immortal  beloved'  of  B.'s  letter),  and 
Ignaz  von  Gleichenstein,  and  was  on 
terms  of  close  acquaintanceship  with 
Count  Moritz  Lichnowsky,  his  brother, 
court-secretary  Nikolaus  von  Zmeskall, 
and  the  musicians  Ignaz  Schuppanzigh, 
E.  A.  Forster  and  Ferdinand  Ries 
(formerly  of  Bonn),  whom  B.  taught 
during  1801-9.  Stephan  von  Breuning 
and  B.'s  two  brothers  also  removed 
to  Vienna.  B.  was  fairly  prosperous, 
his  compositions  were  well  paid,  and 
he  received  600  florins  annually  from 
Count  Lichnowsky.  Archduke  Rudolph 
of  Austria,  Prince  Lobkowitz  and  Prince 
Kinsky  combined  in  guaranteeing  him 
an  income  of  4000  florins  in  order  to 
keep  him  in  Vienna  when  he  threat- 
ened to  accept  a  post  in  Cassel  (1809). 
In  spite  of  all  this  patronage  B.'s  in- 
dependence and  arrogant  democracy  are 
notorious.  The  death  of  B.'s  brother 
Karl  saddled  upon  him  the  responsi- 
bility of  his  nephew  Karl,  whose  vaga- 
ries and  ingratitude  were  the  cause 
of  much  of  the  master's  griefs.  The 
most  serious  trouble,  however,  was  the 
tragic  circumstance  of  his  deafness, 
symptoms  of  which  began  in  1800  and 
which  became  total  by  1819.  B.'s  last 
and  greatest  works  were  therefore 
created  with  reliance  only  upon  his 
marvellous  mental  hearing;  his  physi- 


37 


Beethoven 

cal  ears  never  perceived  them.  Among 
the  trusted  friends  of  this  sad  period 
were  Franz  Oliva  (1809-19),  Anton 
Schindler  (q.  v.)  and  Karl  Holz  (q.  v.). 
In  1825  chronic  liver  trouble  added 
to  his  misery,  and  a  severe  cold  con- 
tracted in  1826  resulted  in  pneumonia 
and  pleurisy.  Four  operations  were 
made,  but  were  without  success.  He 
died  Mar.  26,  1827,  in  the  late  afternoon. 
B.,  generally  esteemed  the  greatest 
master  of  instrumental  music  and  one 
of  the  greatest  figures  in  musical  his- 
tory, is  especially  noted  as  the  culmi- 
nator  of  the  ideal  of  classic  beauty  and 
the  inaugurator  of  romanticism  through 
the  introduction  into  his  works  of  an 
intense  subjectivity.  His  works  may

BELLINI,  Vincenzo  (1801-1835)  :  b. 
Catania,  Sicily,  d.  Puteaux,  n.  Paris; 
composer;  first  taught  by  his  father, 
an  organist,  and  subsequently  studied 
at  Naples  Cons,  under  Zingarelli. 
His  student-compositions  were  a  ro- 
mance, an  aria,  a  symphony  for  full 
orchestra,  two  masses,  several  psalms, 
and  a  cantata.  His  first  opera,  Adelson 
e  Salvini,  was  performed  successfully 
by  Conservatory  pupils  on  Jan.  12,  1825. 
Bianca  e  Fernando  was  enthusiastically 
received  at  the  San  Carlo,  Naples,  in 
1826;  followed  in  1827  by  II  Pirata, 
and  in  1829  by  La  Straniera,  both  in 
Milan.  For  the  Teatro  Nuovo,  Parma, 
he  wrote  Zaira  (1829),  which  was  a 
failure.  For  La  Fenice  Theatre,  Ven- 
ice, he  composed  in  forty  days  the 
opera  /  Capuleti  e  Montecchi  (1830), 
which  was  very  successful.  La  Son- 
nambula  was  produced  at  the  Teatro 
Carcano,  Milan  (1831)  and  Norma  at 
La  Scala  on  Dec.  26,  1831.  Norma, 
which  B.  himself  considered  his  great- 
est work,  was  coldly  received  at  first; 
but  the  warmth  of  its  reception  in 
other  cities,  notably  in  Paris  (1835), 
justified  its  author's  verdict.  His  Be- 
atrice di  Tenda  (Venice,  1833)  failed 
of  popular  appreciation.  In  1833  B. 
settled  in  Paris,  and  in  1834  was  in- 
vited to  write  an  opera  for  the  Theatre 
Italien.  He  responded  with  /  Puritani, 
successfully  produced  in  1835.  His 
untimely  death  in  the  same  year  put 
an  end  to  all  further  efforts.  He  was 
held  in  very  high  esteem  by  his  col- 
leagues. Ref.:  II.  195f;  VII.  286;  IX.

with  Erk,  Koch  and  Fink;  conductor  at 
the  Amsterdam  Royal  Theatre  and  com- 
poser of  dramatic  music  (operas,  bal- 
lets, an  oratorio,  a  symphonic  can- 
tata), symphonies,  overtures,  and  cham- 
ber  music. 

BERLIOZ,  Hector  [-Louis]  (1817- 
1869) :  b.  Cote-Saint-Andre,  near  Gren- 
oble, France,  d.  Paris.  He  abandoned 
his  father's  profession,  medicine,  for 
music,  in  defiance  of  parental  au- 
thority. He  entered  the  Paris  Con- 
servatoire and  for  a  livelihood  sang 
in  the  chorus  of  the  Gymnase  drama- 
tique.  Chafing  under  Reicha's  rigid 
system  of  instruction,  he  left  the  Cons, 
and  devoted  himself  heart  and  soul 
to  the  cause  of  the  'romanticists.'  His 
first  composition,  an  orchestral  Mass 
given  at  St.-Roch  in  1825,  unintelligible 
to  executants  and  hearers,  made  him  an 
object  of  ridicule,  but  he  persevered 
and  became  an  outspoken  exponent  of 


Berlioz 

'program-music'  His  two  overtures, 
'Waverley'  and  Les  Francs-Juges,  and  a 
symphonie  phantastique,  Episode  de  la 
vie  d'un  artiste  appeared  in  1828,  and 
was  produced  together  with  his  'Con- 
certs des  Sylphes,3  which  was  accom- 
panied by  an  elaborate  'program,'  in 
1829.  B.  re-entered  the  Conservatoire 
in  order  to  compete  for  prizes,  in 
1826,  taking  a  course  in  free  composi- 
tion with  Lesueur.  Despite  Cherubini's 
long  opposition  he  took  the  Grand  Prix 
de  Rome  with  his  cantata,  Sardanapale 
in  1830,  and  while  in  Italy  composed 
the  overture  to  'King  Lear,'  and  Lelio, 
ou  le  retour  d  la  vie.  His  growing  in- 
fluence, by  virtue  of  his  brilliant  writ- 
ings in  the  Journal  des  Debats  and  the 
Gazette  Musicale,  insured  his  works  re- 
spectful hearings  from  now  on;  never- 
theless his  opera,  Renvenuto  Cellini 
(Opera,  1838),  was  a  failure  in  Paris 
and  London,  though  it  increased  his 
prestige  in  Germany,  especially  Wei- 
mar, where  Liszt  was  his  champion. 
B.  became  Conservator  of  the  Conserva- 
tory in  1839,  and  in  1852  librarian,  an 
appointment  he  held  until  death.  His 
first  concert-giving  tour  in  Germany, 
etc.,  in  1843,  which  he  recorded  in  his 
Voyage  musical  en  Allemagne  et  en 
Italie  (1844,  2  vols.),  was  successful; 
also  other  journeys  in  Austria,  Hun- 
gary, Bohemia  and  Silesia  (1845),  and 
Russia  (1847).  In  London  (1852)  he 
conducted  the  first  series  of  the  'New 
Philharm.  Concerts';  in  1853  his  Ren- 
venuto Cellini  was  performed  at  Co- 
vent  Garden  under  his  direction,  as  was 
Reatrice  et  Rentdict,  a  comic  opera,  at 
Baden-Baden  in  1862.  He  became  a 
member  of  the  Academie  in  1856;  and 
was  decorated  with  the  cross  of  the 
Legion  of  Honor.  He  also  travelled 
to  St.  Petersburg,  to  bring  out  his 
Damnation  de  Faust.  The  failure  of 
his  opera,  Les  Troyens  a  Carthage 
(1863),  embittered  his  last  years.  Ber- 
lioz, indeed,  was  better  appreciated  in 
Germany  than  in  France.  The  first 
complete  production,  under  Mottl's  di- 
rection, of  the  opera  Les  Troyens  (in 
two  parts:  La  prise  de  Troie,  3  acts, 
and  Les  Troyens  a  Carthage,  in  5  acts) 
was  at  Karlsruhe  in  1897.  His  'oratorio,' 
La  Damnation  de  Faust  (1846)  perhaps 
marks  the  culmination  of  B.'s  striv- 
ing after  the  purely  fantastic;  but  his 
passion  for  unprecedented  orchestral 
combinations  and  gigantic  mass-effects 
was  unsated,  and  he  certainly  carried 
the  science  of  orchestration  to  wonder- 
ful perfection.  Berlioz's  prose  style 
is  both  forceful  and  polished;  in  verse 
he  penned  the,  words  to  his  VEnfance 
du  Christ  (see  below),  also  to  the  op- 
eras Reatrice  et  Renidict  and  Les  Troy- 
ens. The  symphony  'Harold  in  Italy,' 
the  dramatic  symphony  'Romeo  and 
Juliet,'  the  Carnaval  Romain  overture, 
the  Messe  des  Morts,  the  sacred  trilogy 
VEnfance  du  Christ  (Part  I  Le  songe 
d'H erode;   II.  La  fuite  en   Egypte;   III.

strings  and  chorus  ad  lib.)  overture  to 
Le  Corsaire;  Le  Cinq  Mai,  for  bass  solo, 
chorus  and  orch.  (for  the  anniversary 
of  Napoleon's  death)  ;  together  with 
other  instrumental  and  choral  works, 
songs,  transcriptions,  complete  the  list 
of  Berlioz's  works.  One  of  his  great- 
est services  to  the  art  was  his  perfec- 
tion of  the  science  of  orchestration, 
which  has  given  him  the  title  of  'father 
of  the  modern  orchestra.'  His  Traite 
d' instrumentation  has  long  been  the 
authority  on  the  subject  and  has  latterly 
in  German  translation  been  supple- 
mented by  Dr.  Richard  Strauss.  He 
also  wrote  Soirees  d'orchestre  (1853), 
Grotesques  de  la  musique  (1859),  A 
travers  chants  (1862)  and  Memoires 
(1870).  Ref.:  for  life  and  work  see

(1775-1834):  b.  Rouen,  d.  Jarcy,  n. 
Grosbois;   composer  of  opera-comique ; 


Boisdeffre 

was  apprenticed  to  cathedral  organist 
Broche,  a  pupil  of  Padre  Martini.  At 
12  years  of  age  B.  ran  away  to  Paris 
to  escape  his  master's  brutality,  but 
was  brought  back,  receiving  no  other 
instruction  but  Broche's  till,  much 
later,  he  studied  counterpoint  and  was 
helped  by  Cherubini  and  Mehul.  He 
successfully  produced  an  opera,  La 
fdle  coupable  (Rouen,  1793;  libretto  by 
his  father),  at  the  age  of  18,  and,  at 
20,  Rosalie  et  Myrza.  He  again  went  (on 
foot)  to  Paris,  where  he  had  to  sup- 
port himself  by  piano  tuning  and 
teaching.  He  came  to  know  of  Mehul, 
Rode,  Cherubini,  and  Garat  the  tenor, 
who  sang  the  young  composer's  songs, 
thus  procuring  him  recognition.  In 
1796  he  prod.  La  Dot  de  Suzette  (1 
act)  at  the  Comique,  and  in  1797  La 
Famille  suisse  at  the  Feydeau.  Both 
were  successful.  He  now  pub.  instr. 
music  and  became  professor  of  piano 
at  the  Conservatoire.  In  1802  he  mar- 
ried Clotilde-Auguste  Mafleurey,  a 
ballet-dancer,  and  the  conjugal  misery 
that  resulted  caused  him  to  leave 
France  in  1803.  He  became  conductor 
of  the  Imperial  Opera  at  St.  Petersburg 
and  stayed  in  Russia  8  yrs,  turning 
out  3  operas,  etc.,  every  year,  under 
contract.  B.  returned  to  Paris  in  1811, 
and  in  1812  prod.  Jean  de  Paris,  which 
created  the  wildest  enthusiasm.  He 
succeeded  Mehul  as  professor  of  com- 
position at  the  Conservatoire,  1817,  was 
elected  member  of  the  Institut,  and  was 
made  chevalier  of  the  Legion  of  Honor. 
Le  Petit  Chaperon  Rouge  (1818)  and 
La  Dame  blanche  (1825)  were  immense 
successes,  but  his  last  opera,  Les  deux 
nuits  (1829),  was  a  failure.  He  re- 
married in  1827  and  had  a  son, 
Adrien  V.  (2).  After  retirement  from 
the  Conservatoire  with  a  pension,  which 
was  later  revoked,  he  was  reappointed 
under  Louis  Philippe,  and  received  an 
annual  grant  of  6,000  francs.  Among 
his  pupils  were  Zimmerman,  Fetis, 
Adam,  and  Labarre.  Besides  the  op- 
eras mentioned,  he  wrote  Zoraime  et 
Zulnare  (1798),  Reniowski;  Le  Calif  de 
Ragdad  (1800),  Ma  tante  Aurore  (1803) 
and  collaborated  on  others  with  Mehul, 
Kreutzer,  Cherubini,  Catel,  and  Nic- 
colo  Isouard,  Mme.  Gail,  Herold,  Berton

in  1853.  Joachim,  who  heard  him  at 
Gottingen,  sent  him  to  Schumann,  on 
whom  B.'s  talent  made  so  deep  an  im- 
pression that  he  published  an  enthusi- 
astic article,  Neue  Bahnen,  in  the  Neue 
Zeitschrift  fur  Musik,  announcing  B. 
as  a  new  master.  Hereupon  3  piano 
sonatas  and  3  books  of  songs  by  B. 
were  published.  After  a  period  as  con- 
ductor  of   the   orchestra   of  the   Prince 


of  Lippe-Detmold,  he  retired  to  Ham 
burg  for  further  study.  In  1862  he

ferred on  him  the  freedom  of  the  city 
of  Hamburg.  B.  is  regarded  as  the 
foremost  modern  representative  of 
classic  composition,  the  legitimate  heir 
of  Schumann  and,  beside  Wagner,  the 
greatest  German  composer  of  his  gen- 
eration. Though  in  some  respects  the 
antithesis  of  Wagner,  and  as  such 
championed  by  Hanslick,  he  was  not 
personally  hostile  to  him.  He  com- 
posed in  every  form  except  opera,  and 
distinguished  himself  in  every  field. 
His  works  include  the  following:  For 
orchestra  (incl.  concertos)  :  Serenade 
in  D,  op.  11;  Serenade  in  A,  for  small

CACCINI  (1)  Gin  Ho  [il  Romano] 
(ca.  1550-1618) :  b.  Rome,  d.  Florence, 
as  singer  to  the  Tuscan  court.  He  stud- 
ied singing  and  lute  with  Scipione  della 
Palla.  According  to  the  manner  of  his 
time,  he  wrote  contrapuntal  madrigals, 
but  he  was  soon  influenced  by  the  dis- 
cussions of  the  camerata  meeting  at 
the  Palazzo  Bardi,  and  the  experiments 
of  V.  Galileo  (q.v.).  Hence  he  began 
writing  vocal  soli  in  stile  rappresen- 
tativo,  which  he  sang  with  great  suc- 
cess to  his  own  accompaniment  on  the 
theorbo,  and  subsequently  settings  of 
dramatic  scenes  written  by  Bardi.  His 
first  attempt  at  a  full  drama  in  musica 
was  II  combattimento  d'  Apollone  col 
serpente,  text  by  Bardi;  the  next,  with 
Peri  (q.v.)  La  Dafne  (1594),  text  by 
Rinuccini;  then  followed  Eurydice 
(1600),  text  by  Rinuccini;  and  //  rapi- 
mento  di  Cefalo  (1600),  text  by  Chia- 
brera,  the  first  opera  ever  produced  in 
a  public  theatre.  He  was  also  the 
author  of  Le  nuove  musiche,  a  series 
of  vocal  solos  with  figured  bass  (1601, 
1607  and  1615),  Nove  Arie  (1608),  and 
Fuggilotio  musicale  (1614).  With  Peri, 
Caccini  has  the  credit  for  creating  the 
monodic  style,  and  virtually  the  opera. 
It  is  difficult  to  fix  their  respective  mer-

Stamitz,  whom  he  succeeded  in  1757 
as  concert-master  and  director  of  cham- 
ber music  at  the  court  of  Karl  Theodor 
in  Mannheim.  In  1778  he  followed  the 
court  to  Munich.  Both  here  and  in 
Mannheim  Mozart  was  an  intimate 
friend  of  his  family.  His  compositions, 
including  operas,  ballets,  about  100 
symphonies,  violin  concertos,  orchestral 
trios,  quartets,  and  quintets,  developed 
the  style  of  Stamitz,  broadening  the 
form,  and  enlarging  orchestral  re- 
sources (obbligato  clarinets,  also  in  low 
register,  etc.).  He  lacked,  however, 
the  originality  of  his  genial  master.  A 
symphony  (B  maj.)  and  an  overture 
(G  maj.)  have  been  repub.  in  Biemann

CHERUBINI,  [Maria]  Lui&i  [Carlo 
Zenobio  Salvatore]  (1760-1842)  :  b. 
Florence,  d.  Paris.  His  father,  a  cem- 
balist, was  his  first  teacher;  later  he 
studied  with  Bart,  and  Alex.  Felici, 
Bizarri  and  Castrucci,  and  finally  Sarti, 
to  whom  he  was  sent  by  Leopold  II 
of  Tuscany  (later  Emperor).  After 
several  youthful  works  he  prod,  the 
opera  Quinto  Fabio  (Alessandria  della 
Paglia,  1780).  This,  unsuccessful,  was 
followed  by  Armida  (Florence,  1782), 
Adriano  in  Siria  (Leghorn,  1782), 
Mesenzio  (Florence,  1782),  a  revised 
version  of  Quinto  Fabio  (Rome,  1783), 
ho  Sposo  di  tre  e  marito  di  nessuna 
(Venice,  1783),  Idalide  (Florence, 
1784),  and  Alessandro  nelle  Indie 
(Mantua,  1784),  which  were  success- 
ful. In  1784  he  brought  out  2  operas 
in  London  (where  he  was  composer 
to  the  king  for  a  year),  La  finta  prin- 
cipessa  (1785),  and  Giulio  Sabino. 
After  a  year  in  Paris,  he  prod.  Ifigenia 
in  Aulide  at  Turin;  then  returned  to 
Paris  and  failed  with  a  French  opera 
Demophoon  (Opera,  1788).  After  Leon- 
ard's establishment  of  a  licensed  Italian 
opera  (Theatre  de  la  foire)  at  St.  Ger- 
main, C.  conducted  there  until  1792. 
His  next  opera,  Lodoiska  (1791),  began 
the  evolution  of  a  different  style,  akin 
to  that  of  the  French  opera  comique 
composers.  In  1795  C.  became,  with 
Mehul  and  Lesueur,  inspector  of  the 
new  Conservatoire.  Meantime  he  prod. 
Elisa,  ou  le  voyage  au  mont  St.  Ber- 
nard (1794),  and  Medee  (1797),  fol- 
lowed by  L'Hotellerie  portugaise 
(1798),  La  Punition  (1799),  La  Pri- 
sonniere  (1799,  w.  Boieldieu),  and  Les 
deux  journees  (1800,  considered  his  op- 
eratic masterpiece),  also  Anacreon,  ou 
Vamour  fugitif  (1803),  and  the  ballet 
Achille  a  Scyros  (1804).  Troubles  with 
Napoleon  and  financial  difficulties  in- 
duced him  to  accept  the  commission 
to  set  an  opera  for  Vienna.  Hence 
Faniska  was  brought  out  (with  great 
success)  in  1806  at  the  Karnthnerthor 
Theatre.  When  Napoleon  occupied 
Vienna  he  returned  to  Paris  and  wrote 
Pimmaglione  (1809),  Crescendo  (1813), 
Les  Abencerages  (1814),  2  others  in 
part,    and    after    a    protracted    retire- 


Chezy 

ment  turned  his  attention  chiefly  to 
church  music,  composing  his  famous 
3-part  mass  in  F,  a  symphony,  an 
overture  and  a  Hymn  to  Spring  for 
the  London  Philharmonic  Society. 
After  losing  his  post  in  the  Conserva- 
toire he  was  made  superintendent  of 
the  Boyal  Chapel,  and  in  1816  returned 
to  the  Cons,  as  professor  of  composi- 
tion, and  was  its  director,  1821-41.  His 
works  include  1  symphony,  1  overture, 
11  marches,  11  dances,  etc.,  6  string 
quartets,  1  string  quintet;  1  sonata  for 
2  organs,  6  piano  sonatas,  1  grand  fan- 
tasia, 1  minuet,  1  chaconne,  and  other 
piano  music,  1  ballet,  17  cantatas,  many 
single  arias,  romances,  nocturnes,  duets, 
etc.;  14  choruses,  4  sets  of  solfeggi,  11 
solemn  masses,  2  requiems,  many 
Kyries,  Glorias,  Credos,  etc.,  1  oratorio, 
motets,  hymns,  graduals,  etc.,  1 
Magnificat,  1  Miserere,  1  Te  Deum,  4 
litanies,  2  Lamentations,  20  antiphones, 
etc.,  most  of  the  larger  ecclesiastical 
works  with  orchestral  accompaniment. 
His  last  opera  was  AU  Baba  (1833).

(1798-1866,  b.  Finisterre,  d.  Paris)  pub. 
a  series  of  treatises  on  Pierre  Galin's 
method  of  elementary  music  teaching, 
including  Methode  Galin-Cheve-Paris, 
Methode  elementaire  d'harmonie  (1846), 
Methode  elementaire  de  musique  vocale 
(1844,  6th  ed.,  1854,  transl.  into  Ger- 
man), Exercises  elementaires  de  lec- 
ture musicale  a  Vusage  des  icoles 
primaires  (1860),  and  thus  became  one 
of  the  chief  exponents  of  the  method. 
The  methods  are  based  largely  on  the 
use  of  numbers  instead  of  notes,  and 
the  movement  of  a  stick  on  a  blank 
staff  known  as  the  meloplast.  C.'s  son 
Armand  continued  the  method  with 
compromising  modifications,  also  edit-

wrote  a  Rapport  sur  I'enseignement  du 
chant   (1881).

CHOPIN,  [Francois]  Frederic 
(1810-1849) :  b.  Zelazowa  Wola,  near 
Warsaw,  d.  Paris;  son  of  a  teacher  in 
the  Warsaw  Gymnasium  (French  by 
birth),  and  a  Polish  mother.  He  was 
educated  at  his  father's  private  school, 
studied  piano  with  the  Bohemian  pian- 
ist, Albert  Zwyny,  theory  with  Joseph 
Eisner.  He  first  played  and  improvised 
in  public  at  9,  and  subsequently  he  ap- 
peared as  a  pianist  in  Berlin,  Danzig, 
Dresden,  Leipzig,  Prague,  etc.  His  first 
opus  (a  Rondo)  was  pub.  in  1825, 
though  he  had  earlier  written  some 
polonaises,  mazurkas  and  waltzes.  His 
piano  concertos,  several  mazurkas, 
nocturnes,  rondos,  etc.,  followed  soon 
after.  He  now  visited  as  a  pianist 
Vienna,  Munich,  and  Paris  on  his  way 
to  London,  but  remained  in  Paris  to 
make  it  his  home.  Everywhere  he  was 
acclaimed  as  a  master  of  his  instru- 
ment, and  he  quickly  won  the  friend- 
ship of  men  like  Liszt,  Berlioz,  Meyer- 
beer,    Bellini,     Nourrit,     Balzac,     and 


Chorley 

Heine.  He  was  eagerly  sought  as  a 
teacher,  chiefly  by  members  of  the 
French  and  Polish  aristocracy;  and 
every  year  he  gave  concerts  to  the 
musical  ilite,  but  generally  preferred 
playing  in  salons  before  selected  cir- 
cles to  public  appearances.  As  com- 
poser, too,  he  was  received  with  high 
favor,  and  Schumann's  'Hats  off,  gen- 
tlemen! A  genius!'  with  which  he 
greeted  the  La  ci  darem  la  mano  varia- 
tions, voiced  the  general  opinion.  In 
many  quarters  he  was  the  subject  of 
fanatic  adulation.  C.  in  1836  met  Mme. 
Dudevant,  the  novelist  (George  Sand) 
and  their  subsequent  liaison  was  to 
prove  an  unfortunate  circumstance  in 
the  life  of  the  over-sensitive  artist. 
After  an  attack  of  bronchitis  which 
he  suffered,  Mme.  Dudevant  accompa- 
nied him  to  Majorca,  where  she  nursed

CIMAROSA,  Homenico  (1749-1801)  : 
b.  Aversa,  near  Naples,  d.  Venice,  be- 
ing a  poor  orphan,  C.  received  his 
early  training  from  Polcano,  at  the 
charity  school  of  Minorites,  then  at 
the  Conservatorio  di  S.  Maria  di  Lo- 
reto,  singing  under  Manna  and  Sac- 
chini,  counterpoint  under  Fenaroli,

he  prod,  an  oratorio,  Giuditta,  in 
Rome;  in  1772  his  first  opera  Le  Straca- 
ganze  del  Conte  at  Naples.  His  first 
success  came  with  La  flnta  parigina, 
prod,  at  the  Teatro  Nuovo,  Naples,  in 
the  following  year.  In  the  next  29 
years  he  wrote  nearly  80  operas;  and 
he  soon  became  a  rival  of  Paesiello, 
bringing  out  operas  alternately  in 
Rome  and  Naples  and  becoming  re- 
nowned all  over  Europe.  In  1789  he 
agreed  to  go  to  St.  Petersburg  as  Pae- 
siello's  successor,  and  proceeded  tri- 
umphantly from  court  to  court.  In  St. 
Petersburg  he  stayed  3  years  and  he 
there  produced  3  operas,  besides  500 
pieces  of  music  for  the  court  and  no- 
bility. The  severe  climate  drove  him  to 
Vienna,  where  Emperor  Leopold  made

Cipollini 

him  Kapellmeister  at  12,000  florins 
a  year.  Here  he  brought  out  II  Matri- 
monii) segreto,  his  masterpiece,  in  1733 
and  with  it  for  the  time  eclipsed  all 
rivals,  including  Mozart.  Excepting  the 
latter's  operas,  Matrimonio  is  the  only 
one  of  all  the  mass  of  stage  works  pro- 
duced in  this  period  that  has  survived 
to  the  present  day.  It  was  performed 
67  times  in  Naples  in  1793,  and  was 
followed  by  Gli  Orazi  e  Curiazi  in 
Venice.  C.  had  begun  another  opera, 
Artemisia,  when  he  suddenly  died.  He 
had  some  time  before  (1798)  been  im- 
prisoned for  revolutionary  activities 
and  saved  from  execution  only  by  the 
clemency  of  King  Ferdinand.  It  was 
rumored  that  he  was  finally  poisoned 
by  order  of  Queen  Caroline  of  Naples, 
but  a  posthumous  examination  dis- 
posed of  the  charge.  P.  is  known  to 
have  written  76  operas,  of  which  the 
comic  ones  (opere  buffe)  are  the  best. 
In  his  II  Fanatico  per  gli  antichi  Ro- 
mani  (1777)  he  introduced  for  the  first 
time  vocal  ensembles  into  the  dramatic 
action.  He  also  wrote  7  symphonies,  2 
oratorios,  several  cantatas,  masses, 
psalms,  motets,  requiems,  arias,  cava- 
tinas,  a  great  variety  of  other  vocal 
works,  solfeggi,  etc.  Ref.:  II.  15;  IX.

was  taught  by  Antonio  Buroni,  maestro 
di  cappella  in  a  Roman  church,  and 
the  organist  Condicelli;  subsequently 
he  studied  composition  with  Carpani 
and  singing  with  Sartarelli,  still  later 
he  finished  his  training  in  an  English 
patron's  home  in  Dorsetshire.  At  9

petition with  maturer  players.     At  18,

a  thoroughly  equipped  pianist,  he  took 
London  by  storm.  Three  piano  sonatas 
dedicated  to  Haydn  (op.  2)  were  pub. 
in  1773  and  earned  the  praise  of  C.  P. 
E.  Bach.  C.  was  cembalist-conductor 
of  the  Italian  Opera,  1777-80,  and 
toured  on  the  continent  from  1781.  In 
Vienna  he  met  Mozart  in  competition, 
which  was  undecided,  though  C.  after- 
wards imitated  M.'s  style,  which  was 
expressive  rather  than  brilliant,  thus 
acknowledging  the  master's  superiority. 
For  20  years  C.  remained  in  London 
(1782-1802)  except  for  a  season  in 
Paris;  he  taught,  published  his  compo- 
sitions and  established  a  successful 
piano-factory  and  publishing  house 
(now  Collard's),  and  incidentally  be- 
came rich.  He  travelled  for  a  time 
with  his  pupil,  John  Field  (q.v.),  who 
was  but  one  of  a  number  of  distin- 
guished ones,  including  Cramer, 
Moscheles,  Kalkbrenner,  and  Meyer- 
beer. His  compositions  (which  were 
also  a  lucrative  source  of  income)  in- 
clude symphonies  and  overtures  for  or- 
chestra; 106  piano  sonatas  (46  with 
violin,  'cello,  or  flute) ;  2  duos  for  2 
pianos;  6  piano  duets;  fugues,  preludes 
and  exercises  in  canon-form,  toccatas, 
waltzes,  variations,  caprices,  Points 
d'orgue,  etc.  (op.  19) ;  also  an  Introduc- 
tion a  Part  de  toucher  le  piano,  avec 
50  legons,  etc.  His  Gradus  ad  Parnas- 
sum  (1817),  a  great  collection  of  etudes, 
is  still  one  of  the  acknowledged  classics 
of  piano  pedagogy.  It  has  been  edited 
by  Biilow  and  others.  Ref. :  II.  106

CORELLI,  Arcangelo  (1653-1713) : 
b.  Fusignano,  n.  Imola,  d.  Rome;  was  a 
pupil  of  Giov.  Ratt.  Rassani  in  violin, 
and  of  Matteo  Simonelli  in  counter- 
point. After  travelling  and  holding 
various  positions  C.  came  under  the 
patronage  of  Cardinal  Pietro  Ottoboni, 
in  Rome,  at  whose  palace  his  concerts 
were  highly  esteemed.  His  first  work 
was  published  in  1863.  Also  famous 
as  teacher,  he  gathered  such  eminent 
pupils  as  Raptiste  Anet,  Geminiani, 
Locatelli,  and  G.  and  L.  Somis.  After 
repeated  overtures  made  by  the  king, 
C.  went  to  the  court  of  Naples,  and 
gave  a  very  successful  concert,  but  on 
his  second  trip  failed  to  please,  and 
otherwise  lost  the  king's  favor.  He 
returned  to  Rome,  mortified,  and  found 
a  mediocre  violinist,  Valentini,  in  his 
place  of  favor  with  the  public,  which 
disappointment  caused  his  decline  and 
retirement.  C.  not  only  laid  the  foun- 
dation of  good  violin  technique,  but 
established  the  classic  standard  in  vio- 
lin composition.  His  Concerti  grossi, 
the  greatest  of  his  works,  were  pub. 
shortly  before  his  death.  Many  works 
pub.  under  his  name  are  spurious,  but 
the  following  are  accepted  as  authentic:

which  are  in  the  Bibliotheque  Na- 
tionale)  several  modern  versions  have 
been  pub.,  of  which  the  Chansons  du 
Chatelain  de  Coucy,  by  Francisque- 
Michel  (Paris,  1830),  is  the  most  valu- 
able.

cause of  his  superiority  in  organ-play- 
ing) (1668-1733):  b.  Paris,  d.  there;

Coussemaker 

composer  for  the  harpsichord  specifical- 
ly, since,  unlike  his  predecessors,  he 
wrote  only  for  that  instrument;  thus 
he  may  be  regarded  as  the  founder  of 
a  new  art.  His  manner  of  writing  was 
peculiar  because  of  his  effort  to  repro- 
duce the  pieces  as  he  played  them, 
with  all  the  ornaments,  etc.  He  pub. 
4  Livres  de  pieces  de  clavecin  (Paris, 
1713,  1716,  1722,  and  1730),  of  which 
the  third  contains  U  concerts  a  Vusage

Gouts  reunis,  ou  Nouveaux  Concerts, 
etc.  (1724) ;  L'Apotheose  de  Vincom-

brilliant  virtuoso,  and  wrote  much 
technically  good  but  otherwise  medi- 
ocre music  (sonatas,  trios,  church- 
music).  (7)  Elisabeth- Antoinette

cause of  which  it  is  called  the  'English' 
action.  The  new  instrument  was  named

DIONYSIUS  of  Syracuse.  Ref.:  X. 
54. 

DIONYSOS,  in  Greek  mythology  the 
god  who  personifies  the  forces  of  Na- 
ture. His  cult  symbolizes  Creation  and 
also  Decline,  and  therefore  comprises 
the  element  of  tragedy,  finding  expres- 
sion in  the  Dithyramb.  Contrary  to 
the  Apollonic  idea  (the  contemplative 
enjoyment  of  the  beauty  of  form)  the 
Dionysian  signifies  in  aesthetics  the  sub- 
ordination of  the  form  to  the  spirit; 
thus  in  expressing  the  extremes  of 
emotion  the  Dionysian  becomes  orgi- 
astic. The  typical  Dionysian  or  orgi- 
astic instrument  was  the  aulos,  while 
the  kithara  was  specifically  connected 
with  the  cult  of  Apollo.  (After  Rie- 
mann).     Ref.:  X.   56,   67,   69,  74.

Donizetti 

DONIZETTI  (1)  Gaetano  (1797- 
1848) :  b.  Bergamo,  d.  there.  Though 
intended  for  the  law  his  natural  bent 
was  toward  art.  He  studied  architecture 
and  literature,  and  in  music  became  a 
pupil  of  Salari  (singing),  Gonzales  (pi- 
ano) and  Mayr  (harmony)  at  Bergamo, 
later  of  Pilotti  and  Padre  Mattei  in  Bo- 
logna. To  satisfy  his  father  he  entered 
the  army,  but  while  stationed  in  Venice 
composed  and  produced  his  first  opera 
Enrico  di  Borgogona  (1819),  which  was 
successful,  as  was  II  Falegname  di 
Livonia  (1820),  but  Le  nozze  in  Zilla, 
given  in  Mantua  in  1820,  failed.  With 
the  success  of  Zoraide  di  Granata  2 
years  later,  D.  obtained  his  release  from 
the  army.  In  1830  after  a  too  pro- 
lific production  of  operatic  scores  (23 
in  7  years)  he  composed  and  produced 
with  great  success  Anna  Bolena  in 
Milan,  thus  gaining  the  upper  hand  in 
his  rivalry  with  Bellini.  He  now  pro- 
duced, among  other  operas,  L'Elisir 
d'amore  (Milan,  1832),  the  tragic  Lu- 
crezia  Borgia  (La  Scala,  Milan,  1833), 
and  the  immensely  popular  Lucia  di 
Lammermoor  (Naples,  Teatro  S.  Carlo, 
1835).  Enjoying  European  celebrity,  he 
now  visited  Paris  in  1835,  and  pro- 
duced Marino  Faliero  at  the  Theatre 
des  Italiens.  He  succeeded  Zingarelli 
as  Director  pro  tern,  of  the  Naples 
Cons,  in  1837.  Shortly  after,  the  cen- 
sor's veto  on  the  production  of  Poliuto 
(written  for  Ad.  Nourrit  after  Cor- 
neille's  Polgeucte)  so  angered  him 
that  he  forsook  Milan  for  Paris.  Here 
he  prod.  La  Fille  du  regiment  (Opera- 
Comique,  1840),  Les  Martyrs,  an  ampli- 
fication of  the  forbidden  Poliuto 
(Opera,  1840)  and  La  Favorite  (Opera, 
1840),  which  were  sensationally  suc- 
cessful. Again  in  Italy,  he  brought  out 
Adelasia  (Rome,  1841)  and  Maria 
Padilla  (Milan,  1841)  with  success  and 
in  Vienna  during  1842  he  composed 
Linda  di  Chamounix,  which  aroused 
such  enthusiasm  that  the  Emperor  con- 
ferred on  him  the  titles  of  court  com- 
poser and  master  of  the  Imperial  chapel 
for  which  D.  had  also  written  a 
Miserere  and  an  Ave  Maria.  Don  Pas- 
quale  was  prod,  in  Paris,  1843.  At  the 
pinnacle  of  favor,  D.  continued  his 
ceaseless  labors  to  the  detriment  of  his 
health,  brought  out  his  last  work, 
Caterino  Cornaro  (Naples,  1844),  and  in 
1845  became  a  victim  of  paralysis 
caused  by  overwork.  Aside  from  his 
67  operas,  he  wrote  many  songs,  ari- 
ettas, duets,  and  canzonets;  also  masses, 
a  Requiem,  cantatas,  vespers,  psalms, 
motets;  also  12  string  quartets  and 
piano  pieces.  Bef.:  II.  187,  192ff;  op-

with  good  results.  Aside  from  sev- 
eral unperformed  operas  he   wrote  pi-

XVIIs  siecle  (Paris,  1893).  He  was  re- 
puted to  be  the  first  maker  of  violins; 
but  according  to  Vidal  (in  Les  instru- 
ments a  archet)  the  violins  said  to  be 
made  by  him  are  spurious,  having  been 
made  by  Vuillaume,  who,  in  1827,  used 
D.'s  model  of  a  viola  da  gamba  for  his 
violins.     D.  probably  learned  his  trade

Cons,  della  Pieta  de'  Turchini.  His 
first  opera,  Nerone  (Rome,  1735),  was 
a  great  popular  success,  completely 
eclipsing  Pergolesi's  Olimpiade.  D. 
became  maestro  di  cappella  at  S.  Nicolo

enna, and  went  to  Holland,  Paris,  and 
London  (1744),  composing  all  the  while.

Parma  (at  whose  court  he  became 
tutor)  he  began  composing  French  op- 
erettas, the  first  of  which,  Ninette  a 
la  cour  (Paris,  1755),  was  so  well  re- 
ceived that  the  composer  settled  in 
Paris.  Here  he  prod,  a  number  of  light 
and  frivolous  pieces  suited  to  the  pre- 
vailing taste.  By  virtue  of  these  he

13  Italian  and  20  French  operas.

Tinctor  as  one  of  the  'fathers'  of  coun- 
terpoint. Of  his  works  are  extant  a 
3-part  song,  O  Rosa  bella  (Vatican 
Library,  another  copy  at  Dijon) ;  an 
enigmatical  canon  which  is  still  un- 
solved (British  Museum,  and  at  Lam- 
beth), a  3-part  composition  without 
text  (British  Museum),  also  4  MS. 
pieces;  a  Patrem;  a  Regina  coeli  Isetare, 
and  2  motets,  Sub  tua  protecticne  and 
Quam  pulchra  est  (Liceo  filarmonica, 
Bologna) ;  2  Et  in  terra  (a  3),  and  an 
Ave  Maris  Stella  (a  2)  (Univ.  Library, 
Bologna) ;  also  some  MSS.  at  Vienna. 
Recent  researches  have  uncovered  the 
fact  that  D.  adapted  the  style  of  the 
Florentine  Trecentists — the  solo  song 
with  artistic  instr.  accompaniment — to 
sacred  song  and  thus  created  the 'form 
of  motet,  hymn,  etc.,  based  on  free 
paraphrases     of    the     chant     melodies,

poser, whose  ill  health  forced  him 
into  retirement  in  1885,  much  to  the 
regret  of  his  master,  Cesar  Franck,  who

symphonic  poem  'Lenore'  (1875)  was 
prod,  by  Pasdeloup  in  1877,  arranged

pieces  Feuilles  volantes,  the  duet  La 
fuite  (sop.  and  ten.),  the  orch.  noc- 
turne Aux  itoiles  and  a  number  of 
very  individual  songs.  Other  works 
(including  a  'cello  sonata,  a  suite  and 
Poeme  nocturne  for  orch.)  were  de- 
stroyed by  the  composer,  who  exer- 
cised a  very  strict  self-criticism.  Ref.:
